Less than 2 months and counting down

We are expecting our first baby and its about less than 2 months to delivery. It feels very different. Big shoes to fill, anxiety and many more things, emotions mostly.

That and coupled from the fact that i know barely anything about being a father. 

A month back when i was back home, holding Ayeden felt so good, also knowing the fact that i could hold him was even better.

The girl in yellow boots (review)

We had 2 choices, either go for “the girl in yellow boots” by Anurag Kashyap, or try “bodyguard”. Glad i did not go for bodyguard, my wife differs completely. I must say indie films though not in the pure technical term in India have come to a mature level.

I read a review that it was a suspense not a thriller, It is the former yet the climax is very sudden and least expected. Kalki Koechlin (KK) does a lot of justice to her role. She takes her “Shaitan” Performance quite a few notches over here. 

There is just one plot here. Though you might find a lot in the first half to bear, worry not it does build quite a nice punch in the end. Too many “happy endings” or “hand shakes” put in the middle may be a lil bit off the mark here, but the rest makes up for it.

What could have been left out/changed/ etc etc.

  1. The minor sub plot of KK’s boyfriend and his antics. Not sure why that was part or given so much screen time
  2. Nasserudin Shah – The part about him finding the truth – Not really needed.
  3. Background score at the end/climax – should have been more intense.

All in all a must watch if you really want your brain cells to work overtime

Btw if you think you figured out the end before the end. Do let me know how did u manage it.

Cranberry Sauce and Chicken Sukka

Cranberry Sauce and some other niceties.

2 Weddings in about 4 days and one more on Saturday, Is it Hunting season oops Wedding season or wot Lolz, Anyways Went to Mangalore over the weekend to attend Wifey’s Cousin’ Wedding. What a Blast man!!! Seriously Mumbai is really over-rated when it comes to having fun. Day 1 we sleep at about 2. Day 2 we sleep at 4. Music going on till we drop.

Btw they have LiVe Music in Mangalore still, Take that Dance House Mumbai. !! There is really a different feel of dancing with a LiVe Band playing in the background. And you get to hear Konkanni Songs thats really gets your return to roots.

Nonsense

What do u do when whatever you have planned to do the whole week goes down in a pile of lets says Shit…..

You sulk u crib and u give the hazar gallis to whosoever is responsible.

bTw SCRIBE was playing at some Chembur english school, hmm mark of teja in a high school, this i gotta see. I had seen “naked earth” play in my school, but they were so much a trash/metal band and we never did hear a bad work other than a word called (fuck). Who says its a bad word any more.

I got back to twitter, but am already bored of it….

Immigrants are good

Karmic one month later.

About a month earlier i installed ubuntu. It was not the best of installations not cause of the installer itself. Something to do with my hard drive itself i guess. Anyways its been a month.

love it. If i am to describe in 2 words. Yes sometime i feel you have to work a lot so get some functionality working. But love the way the software is setup. For the amount of software windows has its amazing to see how much linux has. A lot.

And the end cometh!!!!

This would be one of the last posts on this blog. Through the years i have posted lots. Read by almost nonone except a trusted group of friends. Thanks guys. But i do not have anything to post no more. There might be intermittent posts if i feel and have something to write, but do not count on it. I would be reading your blogs and commenting. btw Fb and orkut activity would be down as well. My friends have my email/phone.

Adios Amigos/Amigas!!!!

Speech by Chetan Bhagat at Symbiosis

The below is supposedly a speech by Chetan Bhagat.

Don’t just have career or academic goals. Set goals to give you a balanced, successful life. I use the word balanced before successful. Balanced means ensuring your health, relationships, mental peace are all in good order.

There is no point of getting a promotion on the day of your breakup. There is no fun in driving a car if your back hurts. Shopping is not enjoyable if your mind is full of tensions.

“Life is one of those races in nursery school where you have to run with a marble in a spoon kept in your mouth. If the marble falls, there is no point coming first. Same is with life where health and relationships are the marble. Your striving is only worth it if there is harmony in your life. Else, you may achieve the success, but this spark, this feeling of being excited and alive, will start to die. ……………….

One thing about nurturing the spark – don’t take life seriously. Life is not meant to be taken seriously, as we are really temporary here. We are like a pre-paid card with limited validity. If we are lucky, we may last another 50 years. And 50 years is just 2,500 weekends. Do we really need to get so worked up? …………….

It’s ok, bunk a few classes, scoring low in couple of papers, goof up a few interviews, take leave from work, fall in love, little fights with your spouse. We are people, not programmed devices………” 🙂

“Don’t be serious, be sincere.”!!

Thursday, the day that was just abt usual

Sometimes its just now your day and when that happens, things find a way to go wrong. This happens as you say shit happens and work your way through.

But what you do not get it that people do not like to take responsibilty. No am not talking abt responsiblity for their actions but to take decisions. Even if they know probably what they need to do and may be just ask like dude you want me to make these changes/or like i saw the issue and i think i will fix it this way, let me know your views. These are people who would wait for you even if the issue escalates but not fix it.

Anyways i guess its works ok for them, it works ok for me as well.

Since i am writing the post a day post there does not seem to any anger. Since the window had the same text it had yesterday i posted it.

Burp ! Fart ! !

The above 2 words have lots of negative and funny air to it. I mean fart in a calm quiet place and it makes you an instant hit. Hit for all the bad talks that is. You are the talk of the group that is. You wish.

points to note however
1 everyone Sends one thru the back. The ones that do not make a sound are more dangerous in the smell area.:)
2 noise means velocity. T will go out very fast 🙂

that said you must be careful.
How to make less noise
# well actually not 🙂 just let it rip 🙂
